Mark Leibowitz at MICAËLA GALLERY COLD+HOT 2010

The Art Reserve is pleased to announce the participation of Mark Leibowitz’s exhibition at MICAËLA GALLERY COLD+HOT 2010 an annual showcase of the work of selected national and international glass sculptors in a single exhibition. Other featured artists are Peter Bremers, Kathleen Elliot, Michael Janis, Michelle Knox, Weston Lambert, Carol Lawton, Silvia Levenson, JP Long, Susan Longini, Thomas Scoon, Carmen Spera, and Kristiina Uslar, who collectively demonstrate the expansive versatility of glass as a sculpture medium in terms of material, color, and form, alongside the video work of Tim Tate and photography of Mark Leibowitz. An opening reception will be held August 5th on 49 Geary Street in San Francisco, from 5:00pm to 7:30pm.

The exhibition title, “COLD+HOT 2010,” derives from the distinct processes used by glass artists for millennia – sculpting its form, or cold-working it while cold (actually, at room temperature), very hard and brittle; and working hot glass, shaping it while molten, using blowing and/or kiln forming techniques at temperatures ranging from 1700 to over 3000 degrees.  Rich in visual vernacular, “COLD+HOT 2010″ introduces the work of new artists to Micaëla Gallery, Kathleen Elliot, Michael Janis, Tim Tate, and Mark Leibowitz. Gallery hours are Tuesday through Saturday, 11am to 6pm, and by appointment.
